Inner Vision Workout Using Principles of A Course in Miracles — Winter 2015
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
We’ll meditate and practice asking for and receiving guidance from our inner teacher and we’ll practice spiritual reading of one another. If you’ve yet to attend, it’s still perfectly perfect to show up! 🙂
Think of this as a gym — or better yet a playground — for the spirit! We’ll use guided meditation, creative visualization and improv games to practice being present, to access our limitless imaginations and intuitive abilities, and to align our thoughts and actions with the voice of unconditional love. After each exercise we’ll take time to discuss the experience and discover what we can learn and how it might apply to situations in daily life.
Philosophically, we’ll be drawing on principles of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) as well as the teachings of Shakti Gawain, Eckhart Tolle, Barry Neil Kaufman, Keith Johnstone, and others. Familiarity with the Course or experience with meditation or improvisation is not required. All that is required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore and play!
Students of the Course will appreciate this class as a lab for developing our ability to dialog with the Holy Spirit (the Course’s name for the inner voice or teacher who also speaks from the point of view of the thought system that recognizes that only love exists). That said, familiarity with the Course is not required. Believing in “God” or familiarity with the concept of an “inner voice” is not even required. All that is required is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore and play.
